It sounds like your ignition control module died.  You probably have no spark (check while cranking to confirm).

Glad to be part of the group.   Looking forward to meeting new people and making new friends.  I bought a 67 coupe for my 16 year old son and we have had a blast restoring it slowly.  We are currently in the process of swapping the Inline 6 for a 302 and really enjoying the time we are spending together.

I have this 91 Ford mustang GT and as of today I need help to what happen to it cuz it cranks but won't start anymore, I was having problems with it for the past couple of months, I would drive it for about 30 minutes then out of nowhere it would just stall and turn off but it would start right back up then it run slowly and backfire so I would have to park it for about 1 hour and then start it again with no problems, unless I drive it more then 30 minutes and does the same thing over and over but suddenly today it just quit it just cranks but won't start, so I need help to see what the real problem is...

It looks like the circuit breaker for the convertible top

Happy Saturday everyone!

Am trying to diagnose a starting problem (won't start; turning the key gives nothing; 12v coming to the ignition switch at the black/yellow wire, but nothing going out; I get a click out of the solenoid when jumping from solenoid + to solenoid S, but no crank).

Anyway... in the process of troubleshooting at the solenoid, I see this thing attached. The markings are what you can see, plus "Tung Sol 20A 12V" stamped on the back. There's a big black wire (BBW) coming out of it, not sure where it goes.

Can someone please tell me what this is? Could this be related to my starting issue...?

TIA,
-Bob-

Normally you only use one type of the exhaust gaskets - either the donut or the flat flange type.  When using the donut gasket, the distance between the flanges depends on the donut design.

There should be torque values in your shop manual (I'm too lazy to get up and get mine to look them up:-)

Classic Mustang Technical forum / Re: will new carb and intake help or be a waste?

You will probably see a small gain.  It's all about getting air in and out of the engine efficiently.  Carb, heads, cam and exhaust are the main players

if I replace my 2V carb with a 4v and new intake, will I see any benefit without changing the heads?   I'm running 1970 factory 351W heads on a 351W.   eventually I would like to replace the heads and cam; but I am trying to pace myself for time and money reasons

I know this may be a silly question, but I'd rather ask it than be sorry later!  After looking on here and the net for 2+ hours, I've given in...

So I'm installing new old stock cast exhaust manifolds on my 289 V8,  with transverse single muffler and need some guidance on the manifold to down pipe connection.

I've read where its better to use the metal donut instead of the cintered as it holds up better. Went ahead and ordered a set but unsure as to whether or not I need to use the flat gaskets with them??  As an example, the Fel Pro MS90000 set comes with 3 pairs of gaskets, manifold/intake and the other 2 sets are the pipe flange gaskets and exhaust manifold to pipe gaskets.

Can someone tell me the optimum set up and sequence and if both are needed?  Torque setting?  I'd also like to know the acceptable distance between the down pipe flange and the end of the manifold, I've got them both on but not tightened, but it just doesnt look right. The (flat) pipe flange gasket seems to want to hold the donut gasket from seating well. I have it set up this way-  manifold-donut-flat gasket- connector pipe-flange.

Thanks for your help!

Thank you for your input and of course I accept the fact this hobby is a constant for care and maintenance. I just don't feel that replacing exhaust manifolds every 3-4000 miles is normal...

I'll add antifreeze to the list of tasks!
